ET's Kevin Frazier caught up with the Blade Runner 2049 co-stars at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday, where they apparently met for the first time.

"By the way, I'm Ryan," Gosling adorably joked to Ford on the red carpet following the film's panel.
"You're Ryan?" Ford teased back, cracking that "it was horrible" having to work with the 36-year-old actor.
According to Gosling, however, stepping on set with Ford was a dream come true.
"I was kind of in a constant state of [nervousness while filming]," he confessed. "It's kind of surreal to be a part of this film, because it's such an important part of film history, and also, you know, [I'm] obviously a great admirer of Harrison's. So, to get to work with him and, you know, hang out in these situations... I feel very lucky."

Ford, of course, has appeared in many different franchises, from Indiana Jones to Star Wars, but Gosling said the actor is much "cooler" than the characters he's played on screen.
"He's cooler than all of those characters too!" he insisted. "You realize that all of those kind of iconic moments from those movies are things that he wrote or created."
It seems Gosling might have a few iconic moments of his own in the sequel to 1982's Blade Runner, as Ford said the upcoming film "stands alone."
"The great thing is you don't have to have seen the first one in order to appreciate [the sequel]," he said. "This one stands alone. It's great, but it is a sequel, and it carries through on the story."
